Frozen Spanakopita Air Fryer Recipe
We are huge fans of spanakopita! We fell in love with this Greek specialty while traveling in Athens and the Greek Islands.
How can you go wrong with spinach, parmesan cheese, Ricotta Cheese, Cream Cheese, and butter, all wrapped up in phyllo pastry?
They are the perfect savory handheld pastry. Similar to a spinach pie but handheld.
We try to keep paper towels available for guests or napkins. The flaky phyllo pastries can get a bit messy at times.
This is one of our favorite air fryer dishes that takes minutes to prepare. They are the perfect snack or appetizer.
- Frozen Spanakopita
- Olive Oil Spray
Olive Oil Spray - Make sure to use a natural spray like olive oil or avocado oil in the air fryer. Non-stick spray can damage the inside of the air fryer basket.
Air Fryer Parchment Paper - You can use air fryer parchment paper if you don't want to use olive oil spray.
How to make Air Fryer Frozen Spanakopita
It is so easy to cook frozen spanakopita in the air fryer!
Skip the microwave which makes the pastry dough a bit soggy and use the air fryer! Plus you don't have to worry about heating up the house with the oven.
Step 1 - Spray
Step 2 - Spread the Spanakopita in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Make sure the pieces do not touch so the hot air can circulate.
Step 3 - Air fry making sure to flip the Spanakopita halfway through cooking to make sure each side evenly cooks.
We do not preheat the air fryer for this recipe.
You do NOT need to defrost/thaw the Spanakopita. It can be cooked frozen. No need to put them in the refrigerator or let them sit out before air frying.
Every brand of frozen spanakopita is going to cook a little differently based on the size and how much filling they have. Make sure to keep an eye on the spanakopita the first few times you make them.
Be really careful when flipping the Spanakopita the phyllo dough is super thin and can tear.
It is best to eat them right after they come out of the air fryer. When they start to cool the dough can get soft and lose its crispiness.
We rarely store these after making them so we don't lose the crispy edges.
